It’s hard to imagine better bloodlines for the Kentucky Derby betting odds. It’s a pedigree for the stamina needed to beat the Kentucky Derby betting odds. Star-crossed trainer Larry Jones will certainly have plenty of motivation against the Kentucky Derby betting odds.
Jones’ horses have finished second against the Kentucky Derby betting odds the past two years with Hard Spun in 2007 and Eight Belles last year. Eight Belles’ loss was especially cruel as the filly had to be put down after pulling up lame at the wire.
Jockey Gabriel Saez began riding in Panama five years ago and moved on to the United States’ Delaware Park to become the leading apprentice rider there. Saez has long worked with Jones, who had him mount in the Derby and the Kentucky Oaks previously. Saez rode Eight Belles last year against the Kentucky Derby betting odds.
Fox Hill Farms and Vinery Stables own Friesan Fire. They have teamed up before to enjoy marked success with Kodiak Kowboy, the winner of the 2007 Saratoga S.
